Engine light is back

Ok just had the a sensor changed in the exhaust. all was fine, than it starts this wierd lack of power, you give it some pedal, and it falls falt on its face, but if you back off and slowly give it pedal it shifts gears and slowly goes. I got it up to 80, but it seems to have a hard time around 2.5 rpms. what now? this has happen before . drain the sep. and little bit of stuff comes out but not like before, and no water. if i let it sit over night its fine. well last time it was. I'll have to wait till tomorrow to see. but my engine light is on this time, If i go to auto zone or somewhere like that can they hook it up and tell me if it throws a code???

yes any autoparts like Advanced or Autozone can pull the code.. And should be able to clear it too so it doesnt leave you stranded again but def get it checked out soon after. I had Advanced pull my code when my EGT Sensor died this week, then went 2 miles down the road and it died with the Stop Safely Now message.. hope my doesn't have the same fate as yours! So far it seems like all the power is back...

I would imagine most, if not all, of those items would be covered under warranty. I had a similar situation recently in which it was throwing P0652, a code that could have been several different things. They ended up changing two or three different sensors and it was all warranty. Good luck, hope you find it quickly. Nothing more sickening than rolling along and your truck goes into limp mode. Been there, done that, don't want to do it again.

P.S. I would suggest buying an inexpensive code reader/eraser so you can look for yourself if this keeps up. Most auto parts stores carry them, they're not real expensive, and nine times out of ten they'll get you out of a ditch.

Ok, found out what's wrong, it started acting up again on my way home right by the Dealer, the checked it right away, told me the main Injector pump needs attention, and that its covered under the 100k warranty unless there's contamination n there, I know this is kinda major, but what am I looking at if I have to pay, I'm not but.... And where is this located, just so I know???

The high pressure fuel pump is in the rear of the engine underneath the turbos. It's very difficult to get the pump out with the cab on

What dtcs are in this truck? if it's a P0088 then there's no reason to suspect contaminated fuel. Ford acknowledges there is a known concern with the valves sticking. It's completely unrelated to an internal pump failure which usually puts metal in the entire fuel system.

What is this dtcs you speak of? Its at the Ford place now, and yea he said its a major deal, This truck has been in the shop 3 times in less than 1year, rad. oil cooler, ecr sensor, now injector pump, thats gotta be it What other concerns or these trucks having? I'm just worried they might pull some kinda of poo like you had bad fuel and make me pay for it. seems to me the 2 filters (ford's filtration system) should stop most containments from reaching it. correct?

It should stop normal condensation but when the fuel system takes a big gulp of water is when the problems start.

When the problem first started, i would drain the Sep. daily, i'd get some water, and some debris, but after awhile i'd get just clean diesel, i even checked the filter on top, and cleaned that bowl to, but it was for the most part clean, If the little bit of debris cause the pump to fail, than man, I realy do need an air dog system asap, because when this first happened i started using shell and Exxon , Texaco places that served a lot of diesel, But i've come to the conclusion they are all pretty much the same for that truck, I haven'ty gotten any calls from the dealer yet so all must be well, I'm sure i'll hear about it if not
